Honey-baked rhubarb

This week IHCC members are cooking any of Hugh’s recipes for things that are sweet or feature sweet ingredients. Honey is definitely sweet and rhubarb has its season in my garden.

served with rice pudding. The recipe is quiete simple, no fuss in preparing and delicious. It’s the first fruit ( it’s actually a vegetable with an identity crisis says Hugh) in the garden and the whole familiy likes it.

  1. Put the rhubarb in an ovenproof dish large enough to hold it in a single layer. Ulrike: It works fine with two layers. Scatter over the orange zest and pour in the juice. Trickle over the honey and gently mix the whole lot together.

  2. Cover loosely with foil and bake in an oven preheated to 150 °C/Gas Mark 2 for 45 minutes – 1 hour, until the rhubarb is tender, giving it a gentle stir halfway through. The pieces of rhubarb should keep their shape rather than cook to a mush.
  3. Leave to cool before serving. Sealed in a container, with the syrupy juices from the tray, this honey-baked rhubarbcan be kept for a week or so in the fridge.
